    De-Restricted Air Box!

    After browsing the How-To's i got an urge to get under my bonnet and start pulling stuff out.

    Noticing De-Restricting air box didnt mean emptying my wallet i went at it.

    Took no longer then 5 minutes and the result is awesome, i never felt the car pull away so quick at lights.

    Next for the Veccy C Intake pipe, Anyone got one going spare? lol

    Brute force! it's not done properly unless ure bleeding though.

    Nah, just get a screwdriver in the clips, and pull/push them out.

    Cool mate so you felt a gain by just removing the pipes? should be better with the vectra pipe and upgraded filter

    me too lol

    i did mine this morning and was rushing to get to work and i couldn't get the b*****ds out so i took a hammer to them both...

    millions of little bits flew everywhere so only do this if you dont want to keep them obviously lol. not been able to try it properly though to look for any gains.
    oh and i did get to work with about 2mins to spare lol
